And along the lines of the cooling system...
I've been wondering about the whole concept of the radiator fan keeping power after turning the engine off. (too cool things off for up to a minute after the engine is off?)
Is this really doing anything for cooling the engine itself, or is it only cooling down whats in the radiator? I assume that there's no auxiliary pump circulating the water through the engine at this point.
In my opinion, I see this as nothing more then a potential drain on the battery given the potential for draining the battery more then is necessary. (especially if the switch fails and grounds itself out keeping the fan on)
I know several on here with bad switches has mounted toggle switches to control the fan when needed.
Would it then be a bad a idea to rewire the system to only have power with the ignition turned on, thereby not allowing the fan to cool the radiator once the power is cut?
......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.
